Layton, R. H. (2005) 'Are immediate-return strategies adaptive ?', in Property and equality : ritualisation, sharing, egalitarianism. New York: Berghahn, pp. 130-150.

Woodburn's 'delayed return' strategies constitute a composite category. When the components (technology, territoriality) are separated they too can be shown to be adaptive in specific ecologies.
